Mythbusters seeks to find the truth behind common knowledge, cinematic stunts, and You Tube videos. Each episode takes on one or more challenges. They employ a variety of techniques with scientifically measureable results. Other times they use trial and error to attempt to recreate the event. Every step taken, from the design of the experiment to the performance, is seen by the viewer. These "myths" are then declared to be busted, plausible, or confirmed, dependent upon the outcome of the tests.
